We have decided to become "official" and start a nursery business to go along with the current fruit / nut orchard. I am now the proud owner of Florida Nursery #48016285 and even have an official Florida sales tax certiificate.
The orchard started in about March of 2014 with the first planting of a few fruit trees. We now have about 40 varietys of fruit, nuts and berries planted with a bunch more going in this winter / spring. It will take at least 2 years before there is enough surplus to begin sales.
Our small market garden operation has shown real potential for the fall / winter season. With "lots" of green and root crops.
We are workng on growing inventory. We have blackberry, goji berry, blueberry, grapes, red mullberry and elderberry with more to come.
